Tne reasons assigned by the Sydney Chamber of Comnmerce for discouatenancing the pro iponals of the Peninsular and Oriental Conm .tiny, appeal irresistibly to the conviction. In the first place, supposing thatthis new nrrangement were agre?'d to, and a branch line to Galle subsidised at a largo additional outlay, what guaranteo would there be that the company would not a second time sur render their contret nc? And in thi next place, why should New South Wales, in prospect of a postal route better adapted to her interests, p av nblore money . for the mo nopoly of a service in.-which she 'derives but ecolnd-rate advantages, being oftun obliged to remain for a who!!glpoptlh without sending answers to European. letters? We are so loth to see nmail colimunication ga~in inter rnlped, that we are at times tempted tograsp at any proposal rather than submit to that misfortune ; but it is now evident that nil the opposition raised ini 'England to the Panama route, has its origin in the inter...
COUNTRY NEWS. GUNDAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 18 February 1860
COUNTRY NEWS. --- 0 --- GUNDAROO. (From our own Correspondent.) SINCE the heavy floods have disappeared in this dis- trict I have heard of considerable damage having been done to the crops of corn and potatoes --- in many places corn having been completely levelled &nbsp; with the ground. The potato crops have also suf- fered greatly. The potatoes can now be picked up without digging for. The flood entered many houses down this river towards Yass. The upward mail to Queanbeyan was detained at Gininderra, and had to return without the Queanbeyan bags on Monday. Farmer are complaining, especially those who have not had their stacks well secured. I saw samples of wheat taken out of four different stacks to-day, and each sample was grown, and that con- siderably. I am afraid that there will be a great deal of grown wheat this season. Business for some time has been suspended on account of the river being high, but I am happy to say that it has fallen considerably. GOLD. --- We h...
EUROPEAN EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 18 February 1860
EUROPEAN EXTRA CTS. A. WILD GIRL.-A woodman recently 'found a girl lying wretchedly clad, and he numbed with the cold, in a wood in the canton of St. Gall, Switzerland. He took her to his house, and sent for the authorities of the village, who ordered her to be sent to the workhouse. The girl then made a statement to the effect that sihe is the daughter of what are called heimathouso parents-a sort of pariahs who belong to no canton-and that slie had never lived ndtler a roof. She was eighteen years old, but had not the slightest notion of religion. One day her father killed 'her mother in a quarrel, and she (the girl) then took to flight., and had ever since wanl dered about hire woods and mountnins, living -on wild fruits and vegetables pilfered from gardens. To explain how she was not dis covered sooner, she said that her custom was to hide during the day, and to prowl about at night.

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 29 February 1860
COLONIAL ~AEXTRAC'S. EXTrnAOIDINARY Cone.-The case of the unfortunate man Blowen, who was so barbar ously wounded by his mate with an axe, at the Mia Mia, is likely to be an object of lpub lic interest for a long time to come. He was wounded on the 21st November, and has been incessantly and carefully tended ever since. iHe is now getting on very favorably. The wound in the chest, where the ribs were divided by the axe, and the heart exposed to view, is now completely healed, the only ill effects remaining beingl a slight paralytic af fection of the corresponding arm. The brain exposed by tile removal of a portion of the skull which was cut off by a blow of the axe, is only filmed over with a thin skin, and al though the pulsation of the brain is plainly visible, yet the skin nets as a protection friom the air. It is intended shortly to place a sil ver plate over the hole in the skull, so as to protect the brain from any contact with foreign substances, a very alight touch of which ...

COUNTRY NEWS. LACHLAN DISTRICT. (From our mwn Corrspondent.) WLEATIIER.-ThO weather for the last few days was very warm. Yesterday we had one or two showers, which have done much good. Thoe grass looks well; the feed throughout the district is very good. The cattlo and horse stock look well, better than I have noticed themt to look for a considerable time past. IRETUInCED CATTLE.-A largo imob of cattle have roturned from the Murray River, which could not meet with purchasers. This lot of cattle passed through here about two mouthls ago, on their way to Melbourne. They were taken, 1 believe, as far as Maiden's Punt, and an otfer of thirty shillings or two pounds per head in bills, payable in three and six months, was made for them. This the owner refused, and tihe consequence is that he has returned to his station on the Mlacquarie river. Would that all those taking cattle, who are offered low prices for really good store cattle, as the above lot were, would timely return. A tow such...

The writer of the report from which we quote says: " After all, it must he remembered that lse would not be the first continental sovereign who had gone into journalism on his own account, for no one doubts that 'Le Nord' was established by the Russian government. And if they have a paper at Brussels, why should not Louis Napoleon have one in Eng land.-" S. A. Advertiser.'

A JOURNEY FROM YASS TO BURROWA. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 29 February 1860
A JOURNEY FROhM YASS TO BURIROWA. (From a Correspondent.) IIHaving just had occasion to make a journey from Yass to Burrows, I send you a low notes, imperfect enough perhaps, which are at your service should you think them worthy a place in the columns of the * Goulturn Herald.' The left hand road out of Yass over the bridge leads to Bowning Hill, a very lofty mountain which can bo seen at a distance of many miles and on the summit of which, hundreds of feet above the sur rounding country, is a spring of itlear water. At Bowning there ore two comfortable inns, at one of which, under the shadow as it were of the hill, I dined. I then rode on to Illalong, a very pretty place belonging to the Messrs. lPaterson, where I was very hospitably received. Thence Icontinued my journey till I reached Binalong. At Binalong there are threo runs, a large store. and a very nice placo belonging to E. Beckham, Esq., Conmmissioner of Crown Lauds. I took up my quarters at the Swan Inn, which I found a ...

AMr. AIACLEAY asked the Secretary for Lands " What progress has been made, slnce the Ist of December, 1850, when a question was put to the Government on the subject towards fixing the site and preparing a plan and estimate of a bridge over thie Murrumbidgee, at Gundagai?"' Mr. BLA3cI said no further progress had been made since the 1st December, 1859, towards mixing the site for the proposed bridpe over the Mlurrumbidgce at Gundagai, the limited stall of the road deoprtment havingi bee entirely occupied with matters requir oing ore immediato attention; but that as soon as the measures required to replace the bridges swept away by floods had been taken, and the vote for additional assistance for tile road branch upon the estimates for the present year saunctioned, the Gundagai bridge would be taken in hand.

LAND BILL. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 29 February 1860
LAND BILL. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. Smn,--The land bill best suited, and that will meet with the general al probation of the colonists, is that which will not restrict, but that will place the poor man in a position to obtainr a hIome without (that curse) the auction system. Bofore I enter upon this all absorbing and most momentous question. I shall just notice, in passing, tlhat the auction system has hitherto done much mischief; it offered every facility to the rich man to obtain any piece of Inod he chose; on the other ihand it restricted the poor man, with thirty or forty pounds in his pocket, from purchasing a Ihome for himself and family. I have known soveral instances, under the present iniquitous land regulations, of poor, hard-workling men going to land sales with the solo design of purchasing little farms, from thirty to a hundred acres, and having to return with the old story, " he ran me iip," meaning the land-jobber, or I should more properly say tihe land-...
